Friday, August 4th is International Beer Day! And I'd say the perfect way to celebrate is with a beer from a local brewery near Rochester, Minnesota.

We have so many breweries in the area that we can visit. In Rochester alone, we have Little Thistle, Thesis, LTS, Kinney Creek, and Forager. Some great local breweries that we can support right here in town.
